Apotheosis of St. Louis
The bronze statue of King Louis IX of France was designed by Charles Henry Niehaus. It was created for the 1904 World's Fair, which was held in Forest Park, St. Louis.
The statue, which now sits in front of the St. Louis Art Museum, was later donated to the city by the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, and it became the symbol for the city until the completion of the Gateway Arch.
